Fresh Summer Dinner Ideas

Jul 26

In the recent reader survey, so many of you asked for recipe ideas for entertaining and dinner parties. It’s definitely something I want to start doing so I’m going to be working to bring those ideas to you sooner rather than later. In the meantime, I thought I’d share some of the recipes I’ve been cataloging on Pinterest. Fresh meals perfect for summer dinners, whether they be with the family on weeknights or a group of friends on a Saturday evening. (With wine, of course.)

I’ll point out that I eat a largely vegetarian diet with the exception of the occasional seafood, so all of my picks are loaded with fresh produce and grains. There’s little I love more than strolling the stalls of the farmer’s market on a Saturday morning, seeking out the freshest local produce and putting it to good use in the kitchen throughout the week. These recipe picks are definitely inspired by that passion. I hope you try something new and love it! If you do, I’d love to have you tell me what you think. For more food finds I can’t wait to try, be sure to follow me on Pinterest!
